The Space Industry Association of Australia (SIAA) is a nationwide organisation formed to promote the growth of the Australian space sector. By formulating national policies and strategies, SIAA speaks with authority and credibility on behalf of its members on issues connected with the development of the Australian space industry.
SIAA takes a leading role in advising government on behalf of the space industry. Through a program of meetings and other communications, SIAA consults with its members to devise policies to support the development of the Australian space industry and is active in promoting commercial, industrial and research opportunities for its members nationally and internationally.
The Australian Science Teachers Association is a federation of the eight state and territory Science Teachers’ Associations. The Association has up to 3,000 members including individuals, schools and universities.
ASTA, in partnership with National Science Week, provides a grants program to schools each year to support teachers run activities during National Science Week. The school theme for National Science Week in 2019 is Destination Moon: more missions, more science. This theme is a way for teachers and their students to discover past missions to the Moon, and space programs that have solved some of the seemingly unsolvable problems. It also offers a chance to examine current and future space programs.
Faircount has created the definitive annual publication discussing what’s relevant and important in the space sector. It provides analysis, case studies, special reports and a large number of invited contributed columnists.
As such, Faircount has gathered together people from Government, academia, and industry who are helping shape the future of the space sector each year to create thought-leadership articles, and editorial features.
